Are you a male or female? If you are a female, you need to be careful with that amount of money so someone doesn't try to take advantage of you.

Wow, I didn't realize being female caused a person to be more vulnerable to making bad investments decisions.

I could understand if we lived in Afghanistan under Taliban rules, but last I heard women in America are allowed to get an education, visit libraries, and use the internet if they have the desire to learn about basic investing and money management.

Men are no different... I know lots of guys who are also clueless about this stuff.

And on the flip side, the "someone" who may take advantage of her could just as easily be a male or female shark.
